If true, I want my Pilotwings next year!

Xgamerzus5367d ago

sighs no Lair remake or no Lair at all!!!

ChickeyCantor5367d ago

Snes pilotwings still best. Mode 7 for the win xD

SaiyanFury5367d ago

I'll both agree and disagree with Sidar on this one. While I love Pilotwings on the SNES, I also loved it on the N64. They did a pretty good job of making it. To be honest, it's one of the few old school Nintendo titles that hasn't been milked to death, and I'd easily support a new iteration of it.

ChickeyCantor5367d ago

For some reason Starfox, pilotwings and mario 64 never really grabbed my attention that much as the Snes games.
Not saying they are bad games, but i guess i have more joyful memories with the Snes version.

SpoonyRedMage5367d ago

Ahh, I just want to see something awesome from these guys. I hope everything works out for them.

Factor 5 CEO is rumored to be making another company name. We will see.

Question (for real):

What happen to Factor 5?

EvilTwin5367d ago

sikbeta -- Factor 5 still exists. Its U.S. studio...not so much.


The U.S. studio had a multi-game deal with Brash Entertainment. Brash went under, and F5 needed that business commitment after Lair didn't perform as expected on PS3.

What gives here Nintendo

Pilotwings and Fzero and possibly a Waverace too, would keep many fans very happy

I just don't understand what's taking so long in getting these to us

Iv'e still got my Wii and the best thing on it is Excitetruck(incredible game), but it's about the only thing i do have apart from Sports and Resort

Thing is i was alright back in the N64 days because i only ever bothered to buy games for it anyway when it was the updated Nintendo classics such as the above

I'm not as much into Mario Galaxy as i was SM64 and Zelda is even something i'm not entirely trusting of these days - so please just give us a Pilotwings, Fzero at least and we'll maybe shut up about Nintendo not giving us what we want

SpoonyRedMage5367d ago

Yah but if the Pilotwings game isn't up to scratch that'd be even worse. They'd never hear the end of it.

I really enjoyed Commando as a kid and it’s not listed . I bet it’s cheap maybe? Beat all 99 levels just to find out you start all over again .

djl3485923d ago

You must be talking about Captain Commando and no it's not cheap...going for about $130.

I'm surprised Illusion of Gaia doesn't cost more

Any retro console is still worth buying in 2022 whether a Genesis, NES, SMS, TG16. Some systems command a higher price then others but a SNES is still reasonably priced and worth grabbing you can mod the NA SNES to play Japanese games throw in an Everdrive and you're set. I feel sorry for some of the consoles I see on Ebay that have holes in them, yellowed to death, modified with shitty mods that barely work. The SNES might need a little work great way to learn if yellowed just use peroxide and UV light and it will turn white again. If you have a hobby of repairing older consoles that are listed as untested broken for parts some of the repairs are basic you can save money that way when buying a retro console. I just bought a $20 NES listed as broken on Ebay disable the lock out chip and new 72pin connector and it works.

I imagine restoration work on retro consoles is going to become much more important as the years wear on. Sure, hundreds of thousands of certain consoles were made, but fewer exist every year.

Depends on the console a SNES for sure needs retrobrite the plastic grows brittle and literally falls apart same with the NES. A White Dreamcast also needs retrobrite if I remember right the TG16 needs new capacitors it suffers the same issue as the Game Gear. Most of the old handhelds need new screens since they fail with age my Game Gear had new capacitors put in and a McWill mod done to it. The NES needs the lock out chip disabled when the power light turns on and off maybe throw in a new 72pin as well. Sega Master System has an issue blowing out the 7805 voltage regulator. OG Xbox depending on the board revision needs a clock capacitor removed or it leaks and fries the board. N64 controller needs a new thumbstick Sega Genesis model 2 suffers from the solder around the power supply is prone to cracking hence the system will not power up. Sega CD model 1 the laser dies fast model 2 the rubber feet supporting the drive fail and the model is know to throw the pico fuse so it dies fast as well.

It also depends how you treat the system also I baby my shit. I don't throw it around like a football the systems I see that might need the most help going through the years are the ones that use lasers and discs. I know some systems have problems due to how they were built as well like again certain board revisions of an OG Xbox and the Game Gear. I have bought broken systems and picked them for parts. I actually enjoy fixing older systems it's relaxing and a great way to teach yourself new skills.

The Cancelled Open-World 'PilotWings Wii' Game Could Have Been Great

— Nintendo Enthusiast:

Factor5's cancelled PilotWings project for Wii looked amazing. Perhaps it could be revived for the new Nintendo Switch?

This and factor 5's other canceled project rogue leaders (finished but still canceled) would have been good to have on wii.
